Daniel Klein and Mirra Fine of Perennial Plate made their way through the United States on their “Real Food Road Trip” to tell the stories of real food and the people who provide it in every corner of the country. They stopped at food co-ops along the way to meet some local producers, share good food and learn why co-op shoppers and staff are so passionate about their food co-ops.
